I have a patch for git-am working, but with a small problem : it has to
assume that the optional argument to -S does not start with a dash.
This is because git-rev-parse --parseopt does not allow us to see the
difference between -S-q and -S -q, we don't know if -q is the next
option or the argument to -S.

Maybe that's the reason why the use of optional argument options with
git rev-parse --parseopt is discouraged ?

I'm going to send a patch proposal so that rev-parse --parseopt gives an
empty argument for an unset optional argument.
